Butter Brickie. Big Bogie, a.k.a. Big Nougat. If you're of a certain age, those names will make your mouth water. They were three of the candies made by Fenn Bros. Inc., a family-owned dairy, ice cream manufacturer and candy maker that stood on East 10th Street for decades. The company's history will be the subject of the Minnehaha County Historical Society's monthly meeting Thursday at the Old Courthouse Museum. Speaker Daren Anderson's father, Delmer "Andy" Anderson, was employed with Fenn's from after World War II until it closed in December 1971. That means it's been 40 years since anyone tasted a Walnut Crush, a marshmallow-y nougat with "slivers" of walnut and robed in dark chocolate. Or the Butter Brickie, a chocolate-encased toffee. Or the Big Bogie, later revised to Big Nougat when the original name developed racial overtones in the South. "The Big Bogie was a white nougat with the only ingredients sugar, corn syrup, nuts, honey, vegetable oil, egg whites and salt," Anderson said. "Now you look at a See FENN'S, Page 5C IF YOU GO WHAT: Daren Anderson's program on the Fenn Bros, history HOST: Minnehaha County Historical Society WHEN: 7 p.m. Thursday WHERE: Old Courthouse Museum, 200 W Sixth St. INCLUDES: Display of Fenn items and an ice cream social COST: Free Traffic moves south down Main Avenue on Tuesday in Sioux Falls. The city of Sioux Falls is changing Main Avenue temporarily from three lanes to two lanes and adding angled parking in an attempt to make it more business and pedestrian friendly, joe ahlquist argus leader CHANGES COMING FOR MAIN AVENUE By J.L. Atyeo Main Avenue in downtown Sioux Falls will look a little more like its neighbor, Phillips Avenue, this summer. As a pilot project dubbed a "road diet," the city will remove one lane of traffic temporarily from Main Avenue and use it for angled parking and expanded sidewalks with bumped-out cafe seating areas. Some worry the change could cause traffic problems downtown. The southbound one-way handles between 3,000 to 5,000 vehicles a day, with more than 700 of those making the trip at the evening rush hour. Councilor Christine Erickson said when she left Carnegie Town Hall Tuesday about 5 p.m., the east lane was backed up with See TRAFFIC, Page 3C MAIN AVENUE ROAD DIET PILOT PROJECT When: Mid-July through Oct. 31 Where: Between Sixth and 14th streets What: Reducing Main Avenue from three to two lanes of one-way, southbound traffic Adding angled parking on the east side of the street Adding bump-outs with seating areas ROAD DIET mT Stop by and sing National Anthem with us When I play the National Anthem or in a weak moment, sing it I go fast. Probably too fast. The blame for this up-tempo approach can be laid squarely at the feet of the pep band director my freshman year at O'Gorman High School. I think that's enough detail on the identity of the The Director, as it's probably not fair to point a public finger this far removed from the date of the deed. But to be clear, it's her fault. During those first heady days of high school, The Director handed out the PATRICK LALLEY sheet music for our country's most familiar tune based, as we know, on an old English drinking song and said in no uncertain terms, don't dawdle. The exact words are a bit hazy these many decades later but it was something like: "Nobody is coming to the game to hear us play the "The Star Spangled Banner." We're going to play the song and get out of the way." And so we did. Pretty sure entire presentation, from "Oh, say" to "the brave" lasted about 34 seconds. I don't recall any complaints, but there may have been a few.
